WHO YOU OVERSEE:

Currently, this position has no personnel reporting directly to him or her

WHERE IT ALL GOES DOWN:

All the action takes place at our BRAND NEW studio in Burbank, CA!


WHEN THE MAGIC HAPPENS:

This is a full-time role that will require at times long hours, schedule flexibility will be discussed during the interview

WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN US:

You'll get paid between $25-$30 an hour depending on your experience
We've kept our hiring bar really high - you will work with the best

WHEN WE’LL TALK ABOUT HOW AWESOME YOU ARE:

No formal cover letters, please. Instead include a few short paragraphs in your application explaining why you’d be a good fit for this particular position.

Provide links to projects you’ve worked on
Attach a resume

AN IMPORTANT NOTE BEFORE APPLYING TO US:

All of Dhar Mann Studios' new hires will begin at the associate level, regardless of what position was applied for. This approach doesn’t affect any aspect of pay: you will still get compensated during your Discovery Period according to the position you are applying for and within the rate listed for this position. Our organization looks to hire the BEST of the best and we focus on finding candidates who are a strong cultural fit. We have a 3 month 'Discovery Period' in place that allows us to get to know each new hire better and assess their skill set. Management-level roles will be part of a different Discovery Period for each step of the ladder (but again this does not affect your pay or compensation package).
